lion mail is exactly that, an icon that resides in the panel or in the systray 
that notifies when there are new unread mails and shows in its popup only 
those unread in a specific folder.

its biggest problem atm is resource usage since the data from akonadi is all 
copied in memory by the dataengine, some kind of lazy loading should be used, 
but i guess that's for libplasma2...
